Why do I need a Shareholders Agreement?
A Shareholders Agreement is an important contract between business owners. It governs how decisions are made, what happens when a shareholder wants to leave the company, how disputes are handled and other important matters.

A Shareholders Agreement is a contract made between the owners of a business, and it’s a crucial part of setting up your business. This document lays down the ground rules for how decisions are made within your business, what happens when a shareholder wants to leave the company, how disputes are handled and other important matters.
Even if you’re in business with friends or family, having ground rules like these is always healthy for the relationship and the business, especially as your business grows and the stakes become higher.
Please note that we will act as lawyers for our client (as specified on our engagement letter) in preparing the Shareholders Agreement and will not represent any of the other shareholders of the company.
Our fixed-fee Shareholders Agreement packages begin at $1500 + GST. This includes a Shareholders Agreement drafted to meet the requirements of your business, phone consultations with a Sprintlaw lawyer, and a complimentary amendement to the draft we provide you.
As an online law firm, we eliminate the headaches of paying us by the hour and finding time to meet with a lawyer in person. We communicate via phone, email and cloud conferencing — whichever suits you! We know you’re busy, so we’re only a click away.
You’ll be guided through this process by our expert lawyers, who are Australian-qualified and were trained at leading law firms. They left the traditional corporate law sphere to help us make legal services better. Our lawyers specialise in technology, intellectual property, contract drafting, corporate and commercial law.
Our law firm operates completely online, which means we can help you wherever you are in Australia. We work at The Commons Central – a cool co-working space in Chippendale, Sydney – but our lawyers often work flexibly across various locations.
